MPAI Releases Reference Software Leveraging AI Framework

Geneva, Switzerland, March 27, 2024 –MPAI – Moving Picture, Audio and Data Coding by Artificial Intelligence – the international, non-profit, and unaffiliated organisation developing AI-based data coding standards has concluded its 42nd General Assembly (MPAI-42) approving the release of Reference Software using Neural Network Watermarking for Generative AI applications.

The new Neural Network Watermarking ( MPAI-NNW) Reference Software includes an implementation of the AIF Framework and of an AI Workflow that enables a user to make queries that include a text and an image and obtain a vocal response. The response (inference) is watermarked, to enable the issuer of the query to ascertain that the response they receive is from the intended source. The Software will be presented online on the 16 of April at 15 UTC. Register at
